Episode III – The Collection and Health; Discussion: 15 April, 21 April and 28 April starting at 6pm



Discussion: 15 April, 21 April and 28 April starting at 6pm

In 2014, the Sculpture Studio of UMPRUM founded a collection of items using which it is involved in an ongoing attempt to track the boundaries of sculpture as a medium, the contours of an item, sculpture and object, their psychology, materiality, historicity, institutionalisation, as well as the dynamic of a studio community. Items for inclusion in the collection are selected by a committee of students and lecturers who interpret the item prior to accepting or rejecting it. We take note of the entire process involved in the creation of the collection and record not only the items themselves, but the oral and textual flow of thoughts that surround them. We are convinced that a collection without interpretation makes no sense, and so we decided to validate the collection and the activities associated with it on a regular basis by means of a series of episodic exhibitions and other presentations.
